Re: [K12OSN] updating samba



I have had to do this is the past (before using yum) and I think it was on
RH9 9 (maybe fedora 1).  I downloaded rpm's from samba.org

Back then, the samba rpm's at samba.org were packaged differently than
what redhat packaged for redhat (and fedora).

Back then and today, Redhat packaged samba as three rpms (which is also
true for fedora).

samba.i386
samba-client.i386
samba-common.i386

whereas samba.org has a single rpm.

I think that now for fedora, samba.org also packages three rpm's

Also, back then, I discovered that /var/cache/samba/ on redhat (and
fedora) became /var/lib/samba/ when installing from samba.org.  This
directory is used by samba to store a number of files.

Before you do anything else, make sure you backup /etc/samba/ and
/var/cache/samba/.

Because of the difference in packaging, I had to rpm -e the old samba
packages before installing the new.
